The Austrian piano virtuoso Rudolf Buchbinder, widely acclaimed for his technical perfection, is also a known expert for Mozart. Together with the Staatskapelle Dresden, where he was the first pianist to hold the title of “Capell-Virtous”, he plays and conducts three of Mozart’s most beloved piano concertos. Both No. 20 and No. 21 were written by Mozart in the fruitful year of 1785 and are counted among his first major symphonic concertos. No. 27, Mozart’s last piano concerto, is full of references to his earlier works, while at the same time paved the way, through its rather strong thematic integration of the movements, for the Romantic Era. In advance to an extensive tour to Germany, Europe and Asia the concert was recorded in Dresden in an unique setting, which matched not only the musical perfection, but also the first ultra-high definition recording of this work: especially for this purpose a stage was set up right inside the Gläserne Manufaktur, a luxury car manufactury in the heart of the city of Dresden, next to the assembly line with glass walls and oak floors.
